East Greenville Mayor Ryan Sloyer has been charged with harassment and disorderly conduct after he allegedly injured a 15-year-old boy near his home.
Two non-traffic citations were filed by Montgomery County Detectives July 15 in Red Hill District Court. Court personnel said Judge Catherine Hummel-Fried will be recusing herself from the case and another judge will be assigned in the future.
According to court records, Sloyer, 47, was involved in an incident at the intersection of 3rd and Railroad streets in East Greenville on June 16. Around 9 p.m., Montgomery County Detectives alleged Sloyer confronted the boy, from Hereford Township, near his home in the 300 block of 3rd Street.
Authorities said Sloyer picked up the rear tire of the boy's bike and lifted it in the air, while the boy was still on it, causing a groin injury. A detective characterized the action as "serving no legitimate purpose" according to court documents....
